    My quick 5 second answer is.  

    Try removing the :443 off of the host names.  What you have coded says that the normal port for HTTP communcations with host is port 443.

    Opps, must must have 443 (I'm brain dead today).  Do you have mod_ssl loaded?  Is Apache setup to do SSL properly?

    If you do netstat -anA inet is something listening on port 443?
